My Bio
By day I work as a storyboard artist in Television Animation.
I have worked on action shows like "Transformers: Prime" and "Kaijudo, Rise of the Duel Masters" (for Hasbro Studios)
...as well as kiddie shows like "Elena of Avalor" and "My Friends Tigger and Pooh" (for Walt Disney TV Animation).

By night I draw MONSTERS!

I have been a monster fan my whole life, for as long as I can remember. Whether it came in the form of creepy comic books, monster movies, horror novels, or Halloween decorations, I have always loved weird, scary entertainment.

When I draw, I use traditional tools - paper, pencil, ink brushes, hawk quill pens, and acrylic paints. But I often color with Photoshop. So my work is a weird mix of traditional and digital art.

My Deviant Art Gallery is dedicated to my monster and horror illustrations. Step inside and have a look... If you dare!

Is there any chance that you could turn your own creation (Wulf & Batsy) into an animated series?
Neville6000Hobbyist Photographer
Just asking, the concept is amazing. I will buy the books eventually.

Aren't the books good enough?
Neville6000Hobbyist Photographer
I apologize for saying that, Bryan. But I think that this does have possibilities as an animated show (though in a late night slot on Cartoon Network.) Keep up the great work;I plan to buy some of these books and and read them a lot.

It's okay. I just wonder why people always ask this question. Maybe it's because I've worked in the TV Animation industry for 20 years and "Know too much about how the sausage gets made" as the old saying goes. Maybe I would make a little extra money off of it (no complaints there) but you would not get a show that resembles the books. You would get a "safe" / "dumbed-down" version of it. And everybody who likes the books would be online complaining about how the show ruined it.

The only way I'd want to try something like that, would be if I was in a situation like Mike Mignola had with the first Hellboy movie. Where a legit filmmaker with clout, who was a true fan of the books came along, and was dedicated to adapting them with love and care... and with the comic creator sitting right next to him the whole time. Maybe then, but that's obviously a rare situation that only the most famous guys are gonna get.
Merry Christmas 🎄 
I know your last chapter of Magnum Orgus was just released, but please tell me this is not the end of your Wulf and Batsy stories? They are awesome and I hope there more. The question however, is will there be?
